Data Science is my calling (or at least that's what is keeping me running these days). After having worked with the Business Intelligence team for an FMCG, on M&A transactions in the oil sector and getting relevant corporate experience; I feel data is my calling and that I can use my understanding of data science and experience from the Energy and Finance industries to disrupt them in emerging markets.
Let's re-engineer them.
Why emerging markets? Headcount is sweet. This huge headcount adopts technology rapidly. Internet and mobile penetration are high. Data is static and trapped in PDFs maintained on static sites run by regulators. Decision makers want to make data-driven decisions. Young developers and business analysts have amazing ideas but cannot execute due to non-existent dynamic+consumable data sources.
Let's super-charge them.
Some open source projects I love.
